An NMR relaxometry study of heteronuclear effects upon proton transfer in hydrogen bonds
Frantsuzov, Ilya (2010) An NMR relaxometry study of heteronuclear effects upon proton transfer in hydrogen bonds. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The inherent quantum-mechanical nature of the proton transfer process in hydrogen bonds has been investigated through its effects on the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate. The fast magnetic field-cycling techniques employed allowed a direct measure of the rate characterising this dynamic process, which is closely related to the potential energy environment experienced by the mobile proton.
